TRIAS Spring|Summer 2010

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Trias Spring|Summer 2010

"Based on an architectural perspective, a "Lineal Study" has at it's core the aesthetic of innovative linear construction."

That was an under statement. I appreciate the "structure adapted into patterns" & "wrapping in conical shape"... but the heels were of the DEVIL. The obviously poor shoe fit was so apparent, we the viewers, were wincing with pain. The models held their own... but you could tell they were crying inside. One model actually took one shoe off & continued walking in the other shoe & tippy toes. How bad is it when the spectacle that is the apparel is over shadowed by the ill fitting shoes.

Trias "structures" were engineered from silk georgette, waxed silk, silk mesh & silk organza. The color palette consisted of stone grey, Mirta grey, grass green, sulphur yellow & graphite black. I loved the colors, especially for spring & summer.

You will notice that the leg openings are smaller than the top opening... there is your "conical shape." Even the MBFW website left off the more "architectural" looks.

Take a peak...
